District 12 Blog

I expect that this will be my last blog post as your Alder in District 12. I want to thank everyone - residents, my husband, city staff, fellow Alders and the Mayors I have served with - for your support and encouragement for the past 14 years. (That last part is unreal!)

Being Alder in this great city has truly been an honor. Being a part of how this city evolves, grows and solves problems has been inspiring.

i look forward to my next chapter, whatever that may be. I will continue to serve our community as best as I can. I look forward to working with our new Alder, council and mayor to continue the necessary work so that everyone in our community are supported, engaged and empowered.

I look forward to the next EENA Fest this summer, WE/US art installation in the updated Pennsylvania Park, the opening of the Madison Public Market, riding my bike through the reimagined, engaging and inclusive Oscar Mayer site, and perhaps most importantly the end of construction on East Johnson Street.


Thank you again!
